Rick Steves' Italy: Cities of Dreams

Posted by WMHT Web Editor

Watch Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 11am on WMHT TV.

In his latest two-hour special, travel guru Rick Steves tours the ancient glories and back-street riches of three great Italian cities — Rome, Venice and Florence. Starting in Florence, Rick beholds the art of Fra Angelico, Botticelli and Michelangelo before savoring a Florentine-style steak. In Rome, he ventures into the rustic neighborhoods of Trastevere and the Ghetto. In Venice, he gazes upon the splendor of the Doge before embracing the good life with a gastronomic pub crawl and a romantic gondola ride. During the breaks, Rick offers insights into Italian culture and travel.
